    How'd this situation turn out?

    I have a friend who had a similar situation about 18 months ago --- an ecoli infection that wouldn't quit. She was in La Union, ended up with a different doctor at HOMS and got it sorted.

The list of infections she has had since January is LONG, but all derived for this persistent UTI. We are going to give Rodriguez a shot at this and if we cannpt solve it...then its off to the states. She is feeling fine......but next week may be a different story. Its tough!
    Respectfully
    The Klebsiella is a very common cause of UTI, and the bacteria is not exclusive to hospitals. You say she is free of that bacteria but it recurs frequently.There are some variations of it that are near drug resistant and require specialized treatment.
    It frequently causes lung and colon problems.

    You didn't state your wife's age, but this bacteria can be life threatening in older patients and Klebsiella pneumonia is very dangerous. If you can, get her to a different environment, maybe a change is the key to treating it.

    If your wife consumes alcohol she needs to stop, also stop working in the garden and resource where you get vegetables, and fruit and change the brand of water used for cooking. Use Clorox in all laundry including bedding and towels.

    Sounds like you are trying everything but if she is 55 or older you probably should consider leaving your current living situation during treatment, even if that is a new locale within the DR. Best of luck.
